Treasure Island

scarlette Phoenix

(1987 March 25 / Cape Town)

Death


Death overcomes me
It removes all my pain
As I sit asunder and
Watch them remove me

I watch the people
Cleanse my body
If only they could,
My soul
All the wrong I've
Done, I've now come to understand

All the good I
Did will never
Be enough

I should have done
What I could
Before death
Came to me

But I prefer
It this way

As death removes me
I can no longer sin...

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
